The National Pulse reported on May 14 that former Trump advisor Navarro believes that Dr. Fauci’s May 11 appearance before the Senate, where he repeatedly and vehemently denied that he and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded or supported the Wuhan Lab’s viral gain-of-function attempt, fully justifies calling for Dr. Fauci’s resignation.
Dr. Navarro said that the funds from the National Institutes of Health, where Dr. Fauci works, were indeed not allocated directly to the Wuhan lab, but reached the Wuhan Virus Institute through intermediaries Dr. Dazak and Dr. Barrick. However, it is likely that Fauci was aware of Datsyuk’s research in Wuhan and of Barrick’s close collaboration with the Wuhan lab’s “Batgirl”; if Dr. Fauci did not know this, it would be all the more reason for him to resign.
Dr. Navarro cites the following facts.
“The project, Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence, has published 30 scholarly articles since 2014, with more than half of the authors, from CCP-run scientific organizations, including 13 articles from the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research. More importantly, the studies themselves state that U.S. research funding was allocated to Dr. Peter Daszak, President of the Ecological Health Alliance (Health Alliance), and Zhengli Shi, Director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases Research at the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research.
Dr. Fauci, along with NIH Director Francis Collins, used a “low-level” White House meeting in December 2017, behind the Trump administration’s back, to overturn the Obama administration’s decision to ban “viral viruses” in 2014, as recommended by Obama’s National Security Council. “gain-of-function” research that increases the lethality of viruses, since deadly pathogens often escape from top-security labs.
But Fauci, through the NIH, funded Dr. Ralph Barric’s research at the University of North Carolina, allowing Barric to use gain-of-function technology with Shi Zhengli, the infamous Chinese “Bat Lady” and virologist at the Wuhan lab; before the pandemic, Dazak bragged in a television interview about how easy it was to use gain-of-function in the Wuhan lab to make virus more deadly, and how easy it was to do so.
